Tabular Cross Bedding

Escalante-Grand Staircase

Tabular (planar) cross-beds consist of cross-bedded units that have large horizontal extent relative to set thickness and that have essentially planar bounding surfaces. The foreset laminae of tabular cross-beds have curved laminae that have a tangential relationship to the basal surface. Photo © copyright by Robert Faucher.
